ROOTS ROCK | JD McPherson

It's not the drummer's fault: Local boy, Jason Smay, does good as the drummer in JD McPherson's band. And we all wanna cheer him on. But that's not the only reason for McPherson's third trip to town — and he's graduated to playing the Harro East Ballroom. It's because the band is that goddamn good. Mixing rockabilly and 1950's R&B along with other subtle classic American delicacies, it's a no frills show where McPherson lets the music do the talking ... and the drums, too. And you: You're gonna dance, dance, dance.

JD McPherson plays Tuesday, September 1, at Harro East Ballroom, 400 Andrews Street. 8 p.m. $20-$25. abilenebarandlounge.com; jdmcpherson.com.
